The protective role of a natural inhibitor in the fluorescent location of cells possessing a latent form of cell surface protease.

Leukaemia cells possess a latent form of a cell surface protease referred to as guanidinobenzoatase. Latency is due to complex formation between an inhibitor protein and the cell surface enzyme which is stable under acid conditions but is dissociated with formaldehyde treatment. The latent form of the cell surface protease has been used as a protecting… CONTINUE READING
